It was all about the sewing...

at the start.
I used my FNSI time last night to finish my bag that I started working on earlier this month, because it seems I only sit and sew with company lately. 

Pattern is Afternoon Tea bag by Anne Francene from an old Handmade magazine.
I started early and finished this (it still needs some buttons) early, and Nomee was up for more action so machine sewing it was.

All these little squares were hanging out in a basket minding their own business until I started playing with them! Now I have them all stitched into groups of 24, I may even get this together later. Or not?

As I still had tea to drink when I turned the machine off, I decided that I really should get my other needles clicking on the hood. It is coming along nicely as far as the shape is concerned but I think there may be just a little too much blank space between those cables?
Anyone have any opinions about that?

Thanks Wendy for hosting FNSI.
Hope your FNSI was successful and your weekend is a relaxing one in your favourite space.

Interesting construction of the hood, I'd wait to see what it looks like when it's attached. Maybe the blank spaces will look fine then :)
